Palmerston Library

Additionally, the library was planned to provide a formal but modern edge to a rejuvenated 'town square'. The library was required to provide a backdrop and services to support various formal and informal activities taking place in the square.

The library provides books, periodicals, music and internet services, and has been configured to reflect possible future changes in the balance of these media. It is arranged in 'rooms' according to theme, rather than to the old Dewey system, although staff can assist those who prefer the traditional system. Public meeting rooms and training facilities are provided, and a leased cafe has been located off the foyer, with patrons encouraged to take a coffee with them into the library.
